TAYSIDE Police along with Tayside Fire and Rescue and Scottish Ambulance Service is hosting an event at Pitlochry Police Office at 9.30am on Friday, May 18, aimed at making young children aware of the ‘People Who Help Us’.

Blair Atholl nursery and primary school children aged between three and seven years of age are being invited along to the event which will take the form of a scenario involving Tayside Fire and Rescue’s mascot ‘Blaze Bear’ and ‘Adventure Ted’ from Blair Atholl Primary School.  The bears will be taking part in a staged road traffic incident in the car park at Pitlochry Police Office.

No bears will be injured in the staging on this scenario.

Assisted by Community Police Officer, Kirsteen Chalmers the children will be encouraged to call on the ‘People Who Help Us’ with officers from the Road Policing Unit attending along Tayside Fire and Rescue and Scottish Ambulance Service at the mocked up scene.

After the scenario has played out, the children can inspect the emergency vehicles of their choice.

Inspector Maggie Pettigrew who will be welcoming the children to the police office said :

“We are delighted to be helping our colleagues in Tayside Fire and Rescue and Scottish Ambulance Service help these unfortunate bears.  This will be an ideal opportunity to show young children from Blair Atholl, what we hope will be an exciting, interactive way, what the emergency services do to help people and how we all work together as a team.”
